Managing the supply chain in healthcare is typically a very complex and fragmented process. Healthcare supply chain management involves obtaining resources, managing supplies, and delivering goods and services to providers and patients. To complete the process, physical goods and information about medical products and services usually go through a number of independent stakeholders, including manufacturers, insurance companies, hospitals, providers, group purchasing organizations (GPOs), and several regulatory agencies. Healthcare Supply Chain Management looks at problems resulting from constrained budgets; changes in the types and locations of care; and personalised medicine and connected health, which contribute to the need to re-evaluate the supply chain. The book includes an analysis of healthcare systems and examines the issues manufacturers and other stakeholders in the healthcare value chain face, along with presenting tangible solutions. Healthcare Supply Chain Management includes case studies and interviews with international GPOs, distributors, manufacturers and clinical Advisers such as: Healthtrust; Hospital Corporation of America; Owens and Minor; Johnson and Johnson; Mylan and Phizer, as well as health systems in UK, Ireland and the U.S. (HE Ireland, Mercy Hospitals, U.S.; Trinity Healthcare, U.S.). An essential read for all supply chain managers involved in health care systems, manufacturing and distribution.
